Success Starts at Home

HSMA PTA proudly brings to our families and community Texas PTA’s Success Starts at Home program, January 17 @ 6:00 PM.

This interactive program empowers family members to build and strengthen their Family Assets. Attendees will gain knowledge of everyday actions families can introduce that build relationships, opportunities, values, skills, and positive self-perceptions. When families have more of these assets, teens and adults in the family thrive and do better in life.

This is a free event. Childcare will be provided. Pizza will be provided

Texas PTA Presenter: Heather Ashwell-Hair

Comments Off on Announcements from Principal Jones

Happy summer, all!  We have just a few short weeks until an exciting new school year begins.  We hope everyone has had a relaxing and fun summer so far.

Ms. Jones has asked us to let you know navy blue bottoms have been added to the middle school uniform.  Students are to wear light blue shirts and khaki or navy blue pants, shorts, or skirts (as appropriate).   Also, STAAR results will be coming soon to a mailbox near you.  And lastly, for students who will be transitioning to the next level (Kinder to 1st and 3rd to 4th), classroom assignments will also arrive shortly.

Students and teachers (and parents) will also be happy to learn ACP exams have been reduced in number.  A total of 19 ACP exams have been eliminated for elementary students.

Looking forward to seeing bright and happy faces in the upcoming year!
